Video of Mr. Schreiner's performance

Daniel Schreiner ’14 is from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He is a second year student and is considering a double major in art history and music. He hopes to combine his passion for both visual art and classical music and explore ways to combine these two disciplines. He has been playing piano for fourteen years, mostly studying music composed during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Since first hearing the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 three years ago, it has been his dream to play the piece with an orchestra. He is very excited for the opportunity to realize this goal and share this masterful work with everyone.
